Every child deserves a champion, an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists that they become the best that they can be.” - Rita Pierson, Professional Educator

My dear friends, I have chosen the No More Victims program as my Reason to Race.

The No More Victims program creates sustainable solutions for economically disadvantaged and at-risk kids by addressing the physical, emotional, and scholastic needs of children experiencing the trauma of parental incarceration. The vast majority of these kids lack proper supervision, motivation, and support and often times end up dropping out of school. With your support, we will create sustainable solutions that address the economic, social and psychological issues these kids are faced with and ensure they get a fair shot at life.

Click here to see Dominique Sachse's video from Channel 2 News to learn more about one of the many success stories of the No More Victims program and to see the difference your contribution will make.

Please, click the red sponsor me to help donate to this noble cause.

Thank you for your support and donation to raising the hopes of these vulnerable children.
